Help support this friendly and fun bowling group for our sight-impaired members

Sports coaching volunteers needed for Reading Association for the Blind (RAB)

We are seeking volunteers to join our friendly and fun bowling group of sight-impaired members.


As a caller, you will have the use of walkie-talkies to provide the bowler with a quick summary of their shot and it’s finishing distance from the jack.

We currently play at The Rivermead during the winter months between 10am and 12.30pm and at Caversham during the summer months. We do have away games in Berkshire and Oxfordshire should you wish to join in.
